Acer Japonicum 'Vitifolium'

This fullmoon maple has found a happy home at SFA. We don’t have many full moon maple varieties here and most of what we have are slower growing than this cultivar. Located in the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden, the tree can be spotted from a good distance. The fall color has been described by visitors as “iridescent”, “outrageous”, “striking” and foliage transitions between yellow, red and orange to make a big splash in the fall.
